Tranquilo Mat Review

Updated February 2019

When we see a great new product, we love to tell everyone about it…which is why we just had to do a Tranquilo Mat review.

The Tranquilo Mat is a portable, vibrating mat created to calm fussy newborns. It was invented by Melissa Gersin, a maternity RN in the Boston area, after witnessing struggling parents trying to soothe their fussy babies.

The Tranquilo Mat works by mimicking the sounds and motions of the womb.

“While in utero, your baby is suspended in amniotic fluid and gently swayed and jostled from every shift in your body position, as well as lulled by constant motion and sounds from your heart beat, blood flow, and other bodily functions.

The sounds inside the womb have been recorded as high as 80-90 decibels —nearly as loud as a vacuum cleaner or hairdryer!

After emerging from nine months in a warm cocoon of constant motion and white noise, it’s no wonder new babies often ‘cry for no reason.'”

We wanted to put it to the test in real life (IRL), so we held a giveaway where three lucky parents got to test it out in exchange for a review.

After hearing from these moms, we like what we see!

Please note that it’s not safe to use the Tranquilo Mat between the baby and her car seat.

  1. Fantastic.All good…Except.,Bought the large for my Daughter who just had a baby. The day after purchasing I get an e-mail from “Tranquilo”, offering a 10% discount using code SLEEP10. What a burn, Tranquilo!. Sure you had my order on file and sent this knowing I’d already ordered one at full price.
